Ingredients

  • 3 large jalapeño chiles
  • 6 tablespoons chive and onion-flavored cream cheese (from 7.5-oz tub)
  • 3 fully cooked breakfast sausage links, cut in half lengthwise (from 8.3- to 9.6-oz package)
  • 12 slices precooked bacon (from two 2.52-oz packages)
  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Cornbread Swirls (6 Count)
  • 1/2 cup mustard, for dipping

Steps

  • 1
    Cut chiles lengthwise; use spoon to remove seeds, ribs and stems.
  • 2
    Fill each chile half with 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese.
  • 3
    Place 1 sausage half into each chile half.
  • 4
    Wrap 2 strips of bacon entirely around each chile half.
  • 5
    Unroll cornbread swirls; separate into 6 pieces. Gently stretch each piece to 15 inches, and wrap 1 around each chile half, completely covering chile and bacon.
  • 6
    Spray air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place 3 poppers in air fryer basket. Set air fryer to 320°F; cook 13 to 16 minutes, until cornbread swirls are deep golden brown and sausage reaches at least 165°F in center. Repeat with remaining poppers. Serve with mustard.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer doesn't have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings. Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start.
  • tip 2
    We tested this recipe for Air Fryer Sausage Corn Dog Poppers in a 3.7-quart and a 5.8-quart air fryer. If using a larger air fryer, the poppers will cook more quickly—so be sure to check on them earlier.
  • tip 3
    Want a little more heat? Use spicy jalapeño cream cheese in place of the chive and onion cream cheese called for in this recipe.
